The first official DOB applications have been filed for JPMorgan’s new 57-story supertall office tower at 270 Park Avenue in Midtown East, Manhattan. YIMBY last reported on the 270 Park Avenue site when developer JPMorgan Chase filed a text amendment with City Planning for a tower designed by Foster + Partners Architects. Located between East 47th Street and East 48th Street, the lot is five blocks north of Grand Central Station, serviced by Metro North, as well as 4, 5, 6, 7, and S trains.
Demolition permits were filed last week for 5 East 51st Street, part of the assemblage that could give rise to New York City’s future tallest building by roof height. The future 1,556-foot-tall and 96-story Tower Fifth, is located in Midtown East, between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Permits were previously filed for this lot in April, but later withdrawn. Filings for the remaining structures within the footprint have also been trickling in over the past few months, hopefully indicating that excavation for the prospective supertall is imminent.
After several years of legal battles between developers involved with the project, and NIMBYs who were not, construction on 430 East 58th Street, aka 3 Sutton Place, is finally now rising above street level. The first set of reinforced concrete floors have already been poured, and formwork is now above the adjacent buildings. A slight cantilever on the eastern elevation is beginning to form and protrude outwards. The future residential skyscraper was formerly being designed by Foster + Partners, but is now being overseen by Thomas Juul-Hansen, and is set to rise 800 feet over the Midtown East neighborhood of Sutton Place. Gamma Real Estate is the developer, and the lot is located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue.
YIMBY recently went to the sales launch event for the Centrale, aka 138 East 50th Street, one of the newest residential buildings to be completed in Midtown. The site is located between Third Avenue and Lexington Avenue. Pelli Clarke Pelli is the designer of the 71-story, 800-foot-tall skyscraper while SLCE Architects is the executive architect. Ceruzzi Properties is the developer of the Midtown East property. A total of 124 condominiums will be housed within the slender tower of glass and terracotta panels, which feature interiors by Champalimaud. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is handling both sales and marketing.
